★ Hot brew
The first step is to rinse your tea-ware with boiling water once for sterilization and warm up your teapot and cups.
Place tea leaves into your tea-pot, with the amount of 1/4~1/5 volume of your pot (looks like a thin layer).
Pour out the first infusion after 50 seconds (roughly). And the duration for the following infusions is separate as nearly 50 seconds (2nd), 55 seconds (3rd), about 55 seconds for the 4th, and approximately 70 seconds (5th).
※ We highly recommend you not to brew tea for too long that will make the tea leaves release greater amounts of tannic acid and caffeine, which might be harmful to your physical health and easy to destroy the unique aroma and tastes of teas. The information above is for reference only. Please add or reduce the tea leaves used by your personal preference.
★ Cold brew
- First, place some tea leaves into one pot, fill in a few cold drinking waters for washing the tea leaves, and then pour out the waters. <For a 600cc bottle: require two caps of tea leaves; you can add/reduce tea leaves just as you like. >
- Fill with cold water up to 80% full bottle volume.
- Put the plastic bottle into your fridge. The duration for the first cold brew is 8 hours approximately. After pouring out the tea, you can fill it with cold water again for the 2nd infusion for cold brewing. The duration for the 2nd brewing is 24 hours. After that, you can enjoy and have your delicious cold-brewing tea. Remember not to leave the cold-brewing tea under room temperature for too long to avoid degeneration.
